Windows 7: Problem with Bit colour and Resolution

25 Jul 2009   #31

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Strange that you don't have a monitor tab - I would expect one, even if it is showing just a generic pnp type. In addition, the display adapters tab shows a VGA compatible device instead of the 8400GS which you say you have installed.

Just a thought - do you have in-built graphics as well, and have you plugged the monitor into this by mistake?

And on that thought. Maybe in the BIOS the internal card is selected as first device instead of PCIE ?
